He has done 2 surgeries for me. I recommend him highly, He is a very skilled surgeon and caring doctor. He is always willing to listen and answer questions. I would not hesitate to have him do another surgery for me.
in Raymond, MS |
Very professional caring and understanding. Takes the time to explain what needs to be done and why. Not one of these doctor's who do not listen and runs in the room and the right back out. This is my 2nd surgery that Dr Petro has done for me.
